The apple tree symbolizes the wealth entrusted to us. As gardeners, we provide maintenance, development and transmission. The life cycle of trees inspires our management style:

  • A good planting to encourage root development,
  • A phase of fortification and growth of the tree in order to withstand the vagaries of time,
  • The selection and fruit picking.


Our primary role is to be constantly listening to your needs and their evolution. Meanwhile we continuously monitor and analyse the environment in which we invest to avoid major pitfalls.

Despite our vigilance, we are not immune to any storm. This is where our ability to rebound comes into play. All crises bring opportunities.


Our team consists of men and women who all have experience of entrepreneurs, providing our customers with guarantees of commitment, responsibility and performance culture.
